  • Anyone know what this is?

    Hey-oh!

    I just found an add for a Yamaha snare pad on a site for used stuff, but I'm not quite sure what it is, do anyone here know? http://www.blocket.se/goteborg/Yamah...e_53253469.htm
    It looks quite nice, it would probably be cool as a side snare or something. I think I've seen a pad like that before, but that must have been quite long ago. I tried googling to find some info about it but couldn't find any, the fact that the seller has no clue about anything makes it even harder to figure out what it is.

    That's a Yamaha RHP120SD pad.



    The RHP-pads came with the first DTXtreme module (DTXtreme I, introduced at NAMM 2001) The model-names went as follows:



    - RHP (for "Real Head Pad")

    - 80, 100 or 120 (depending on the head size, 8", 10" or 12")

    - SD as in 'Snare-Drum' (the tom pads featured tom mounting brackets, and hence lost the 'SD' at the end of the model-name.)

      Aah, cool! I've asked the guy for more pictures on it, gonna ask him to check the size on it aswell. Could be a cool thing to have if it's in good condition

        Those RHP pads do not have a setting already done in the newer modules. You will have to tweak them yourself. Plus, they will only be head sound as they are piezo-piezo inputs, not piezo-switch like the newer module. .. So no rim sound.

          ...but the DTX500 would have a piezo/piezo input, I'm certain!

          (At least in the form of input '8/9' ...It seems I forgot, if inputs '2/10' through '4/12' are piezo/piezo or piezo/switch...?)

            The tom inputs are piezo-piezo, but some settings are shared with the tom inputs, so tweaking settings will affect both the toms and the snare at the same time. Also, is the price 800 KR ? That's $122 US, seems a bit pricey when you could probably buy a cheap 12" shell, a mesh head, add a Wronka, Intrigg or DIY your own trigger with an L bracket, some foam and a couple of piezos, for surely less than $50 (300 KR?)
